Setting up Kubuntu of my M6811 e-machines laptop

  1. Oct 9, 2005 #1
    I don't understand ndiswrapper.. or any linux commands.. but I want to move to linux..

    I can't figure out how to use the ndiswrapper setup for my wireless card.. i've tried before and it took me multiple hours for multiple days and then I gave up..

    I want to be able to access my laptop from a remote location and u/l and d/l files from it.

    Web servers i've been usually lately aren't too reliable. :grumpy:
    Anyone have any ideas on how I could set up my wireless card in under an hour?

    I'd be willing to use the newest version of Suse also.
    I'm a student so I don't have a lot of time to play around with Linux commands and so forth..
    However, I would be willing to spend at most an hour a day trying to figure junk out.

    Shouldn't there be a model number on the card somewhere?
